LONDON Jun 2: A man’s body found in a garden in London is believed to have fallen from a plane, police say.
Scotland Yard are working to establish the identity of the man who they believe was a stowaway and had fallen from the landing gear compartment of an inbound Kenya Airways flight to Heathrow Airport.
Police were called at on Sunday afternoon to a residential address in Offerton Road, Clapham after the body was discovered in a garden. Officers attended with the London Ambulance Service.
The death is not being treated as suspicious and the crime scene that was put in place has now closed.
A post-mortem examination will be carried out in due course.
Police are now trying to find out who the man was and enquiries are underway to establish the full circumstances.
A bag, water and some food were discovered in the landing gear compartment once it landed at the airport.
The South Central Command Unit and the Met’s Aviation Policing Command will be liaising with the airline and international authorities on the investigation.
